The Range Burlington Historical Society

Dear BRRC Members,

In 2016 a few historically minded firearm enthusiasts at BRRC got together with an idea: to hold talks & meetings to introduce members to some of the rarer & famous arms that many of us have heard about, read about, yet maybe have never seen in real life.

From 2017 to 2019 several meetings followed, covering such topics as: the Brown Bess, Cowboy Arms, W.W.1 Arms, the Snider Enfield and the well-known Lee Enfield in all its glory. All was going well...... …..THEN COVID STRUCK

Now Covid has relaxed its grip to enable gatherings again, the RBHS has recommenced presentations starting with a talk on the Battle of Rorke's Drift in Nov. 2022.

Now we present our 1st talk for 2023, The Wrecks of Long Point, Lake Erie - details are attached.

We have some varied talks planned for this year & next, such as: Winchester Rifles, US Civil War Arms, The Martini Henry Rifle, Arms of the East India Company & many, many more.

All talks are admission free & participants are welcome to bring their own items for display.

If you wish to attend, please book a seat number as we are limited to a maximum of 25 members at each talk.

Use the email below which is just for reservations. The reservation email is:

In the meantime, we invite any members who want to be notified about upcoming talks, to send their email to the above address & we will add their names to the list.

Best Regards,
Peter Burgess
